Onion Soup Gratinee

Recipe Ingredients:
Butter-1 stick.
Garlic-2 cloves minced.
Onions-2 pounds mix white, sliced.
Flour-5 tablespoons.
French Bread-6 crusty sliced lightly toasted.
Chicken or Vegetable Stock-8 cups.
Dry White Wine-2 cups.
Gruyere Cheese-2 cups grated.
Salt and Black Pepper-to taste.

Melt the butter in a large stock pot. Add the onions and fry until golden brown. Add in the garlic and cook for a few minutes. Add the flour in the pot and stir coating all the onions and fry until golden. Pour in the stock and white wine. Season with the salt and pepper. Bring to a boil. Continue to cook on a medium flame for about 40 minutes so that the flavors will infuse. Pour the soup in to the crocks filling only 3/4 the way. Place a slice of toasted French bread on top of the soup and submerge it gently. Sprinkle with a generous portion of the grated cheese. Broil until the cheese is melted. Serve bubbling hot with a nice salad of mixed greens.
